I am thinking of hosting an Essential Oil class for my friend Carly at my home and would like to see if any one from Moy would be interested in attending. The Essential oils that Carly uses are the only Certified Pure essential oils in the world and they can be used to help us heal our bodies & emotions. The evening or day would be really relaxed and you get to experience lots of the oils.
Missing from Moy - small black neutered male cat 'Esky'. Last seen on Thursday 24th November. All black except for a small white star on his chest. Only other distinguishing feature is a kink in his tail. Microchipped. Much loved and speedy return hoped for. Any sightings or information gratefully received.
Please see the letter below to all Moy residents. Moy residents are strongly encouraged to register for a Better Broadband voucher. The aim is to get as many properties as possible to sign up to help minimise the cost of this project for the community. It is important that even non-internet users register so our community can save the maximum amount of money. The vouchers have to be applied for as part of a scheme rather than on an individual basis.
Dear Moy residents,
After overwhelming support for Option 2: BT Openreach solution, SCD are now collecting the information for the Better Broadband voucher scheme.
Each household may be entitled to a £350 government funded voucher, which will be used towards the BT Openreach solution in Moy.
1st name and surname, address (with postcode) and email address.
The information will be passed to BT and they will register it, and then pass this on to the government (this information will not be given to any other party).
Registration for the voucher is an important part of the project, so please could I ask any Moy resident to pass this information on to others, and I will try to contact as many residents as possible.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.
At a vote after the Cadispa report on Monday 14th November, Moy residents voted almost unanimously for Option 2 which is the BT Openreach option. In addition, there were 3-4 who could not make the meeting who also voted for option 2.
Option 2 – BT Openreach:
Strathdearn Community Developments has also been in touch with BT Openreach directly. The Openreach proposal would be to install 3 new Fibre cabinets subject to survey and planning agreement, one at Dalmagarry (delivering to properties estimated speeds between 1.6-60.2mbps) and 2 cabinets in Moy (24.7 –80.0mbps and 27.8 –42.6mbps).
Moy residents should read this before attending the Cadispa presentation meeting on 16th November (see also "Important Meeting for Moy Residents" below).
Dear Moy Residents,
One of the main concerns brought up by Moy residents in the recent CADISPA Study is the poor broadband. The slow broadband is having a negative impact on both local business and family life as broadband becomes an ever more important utility.
Currently BT Openreach, the main service provider has no plans to upgrade Moy as part of the Digital Scotland Programme during the first Phase. Although BT is a private company, there are no plans identified that would provide a better level of speed from the existing network thus improving service and has no current service level obligation to address this.
There has been discussion at UK level of introducing a Universal Service Obligation on Broadband which would require every premise to have access to a minimum of 10mbps. This is yet to be agreed and there are no timelines on this. Therefore whilst change in the future may happen it does leave the question as to how the service will be improved in near future, and whether we be proactive in driving change ourselves or simply wait for future developments in the network.
Strathdearn Community Developments have been exploring the various options.
